IPAA Access - Summer 2016 - (Page 16)

Feature: Offshore Safety Update Ensuring U.S. Offshore Energy Production is the SAFEST IN THE WORLD By IPAA's Barry Russell, NOIA's Randall Luthi, and IAGC's Nikki Martin THE U.S. OIL AND NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY IS MADE UP OF A WIDE ARRAY OF COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS. FROM SMALL TO LARGE EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION COMPANIES TO GEOLOGISTS AND ENGINEERS, THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY IS COMPOSED OF HARDWORKING MEN AND WOMEN DEDICATED TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF AMERICAN ENERGY DEVELOPMENT, THE CREATION OF INNOVATIVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, AND ABOVE ALL, THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE THE ENERGY WE ALL RELY UPON EACH DAY IN A SAFE AND SECURE s MANNER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, WORKERS AND COMMUNITIES. Safety is not a word that is tossed around lightly in our industry. After all, the people who work every day on well sites, rigs offshore and seismic vessels are the same people who live, work and raise their families in those communities. To promote the highest safety standards, companies provide briefings and training for employees; hire large teams focused solely on the 16 IPAA ACCESS MAGAZINE Summer 2016 environment, health and safety of a project; and encourage continued technological advancements to reduce potential risks on-site. This advancement is showcased offshore, where oil and gas producers are deploying new, innovative solutions to ensure that U.S. offshore energy production is the safest in the world. One incident is one too many, and that is why the energy industry has no greater priority than the safety of our workers and environment. With the Obama Administration's Offshore Well Control Rule recently released, and as many look back at the anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon incident, it is important to understand the dedication and continued safety improvements being made by this vital industry.
